About This Brand
This brand, known for its durability and dependability, went through an entire line and design change in 2007. Weber is known for its quality products in the midpriced to high-priced categories, and grills that feature coated cast-iron and stainless-steel-rod cooking grates and long-warranty stainless-steel burners. (The company offers a natural-gas version for most of its grills.) Weber recently introduced an infrared-searing station on some of its grills, updated its Q line of portable grills, and added colors to its entire lineup. Weber grills are available at many retailers nationwide. Grills range in price from $130 to $3,000. Note that Weber acquired Ducane about four years ago.
Features & Specs - Weber Genesis E-330
Stainless-steel grates Primary cooking grates made of stainless-steel are generally sturdier than those made of coated steel and resist rust even without a porcelain coating.
Coated-cast-iron grates The grill's primary cooking grates may be made of porcelain coated cast-iron, which generally sears meats better and keeps grilling temperatures more consistent than grates made of porcelain coated steel. The porcelain coating usually makes such grates easier to clean than other surfaces, and the grates should resist rust as long as their porcelain coating isn't chipped.
All or mostly stainless Includes more than just a panel or other trim. Based on our limited tests, nonmagnetic stainless is less likely to corrode.
All or mostly stainless
Long-warranty burners While burners remain the grill's most-replaced part, most are warranted for only 3 to 5 years. Better burners are covered for 10 years or more.
Side burner A side burner, which resembles a gas-stove burner and has its own heat control, is handy if you want to cook vegetables or sauce without leaving the grill. A side burner could also be an infrared burner used for searing.
Infrared burner Gas burner that uses infrared technology (ceramic burner, plates and screens, or troughs as some examples) for cooking. An indirect flame is used for cooking food. Burner can be located as the main burner, side burner, rotisserie burner, or any combination of burners.
My previous Weber Silver B of 15 years finally started to rust badly. After (3) replacement of burners and grates it was time to say goodbye to an old friend. I looked at all the alternatives. Looked nice, good reviews etc. I decided that all the others I would replace within 5 years or less. Friends who have other grills not Weber look like they have been through the war. I really tried to convince myself that the other alternatives were viable. But in the end I knew I could not fool myself that the Weber was actually the cheaper alternative in the long run. So I bite the bullet and am not disappointed. This grill simply does it right, no bells or whistles, cooks exactly like you would expect. Cooks very evenly, performs perfectly. If it lasts like my Silver B I will be very happy. Got is delievered and assembled for free, so the replacement was cooking that evening for dinner. So far it is as advertised.

Weber Grill 300 Genesis
I bought this grill 4 years ago. It's suppose to be ALL stainless steel. Last week the rear wheel fell off. It's inserted into a square tube. The entire tube broke apart from rust. The entire side panel is rusting and breaking apart, along with another tube for a wheel. These items were not properly prepared for rust proofing, never mind it was advertised as ALL stainless steel grill. I'm even on the second cover, also Weber brand and double the price. Called customer service and they just said the parts are no longer available. Never mind any warranty. NOT worth the money!!! Buy one of those $250 grills and dispose of it in 4 years, same thing! Will never buy a Weber again.

Natural Gas Model Option
Waste Fat Easy To Remove
The available natural gas model has made this a FUN BBQ grill. The long line of Weber options has us experimenting more with the grill's potentials. Not only are there stainless steel vegetable cooking baskets, but a heavy two sided porcelain-enameled cast-iron griddle and smoke box. The smoke box fits conveniently between the burners and grill bar surface. After using a cheaper, yet CR recommended, grill for many years, the even temperatures of this unit is a welcomed plus in preparing food. Costing almost four times the amount of our first natural gas grill, it is worth the expense for convenience in design and cooking results. The new searing heat bar has been a welcomed addition. Enjoy preparing beef or lamb with an American Norton grape wine in hand.
